God Without Being (God)

A Lacanian Critique of Jean-Luc Marion

(p.133) 8 God Without Being (God)
Interstices of the Sublime

Fordham University Press

This chapter deals with the relations between God and being, and God and the good after Heidegger's critique of ontotheology. It revisits Anselm's proof of God under the pressure of Lacan's seminar on The Ethics of Psychoanalysis. “Onto-theo-logy,” a Heideggerian term, refers to the logic of thinking about God in relation to being and vice versa, and this term is seen to encapsulate and incorporate Heidegger's critique of metaphysics. Anselm thinks of God as maximum by asserting and then respecting a limit, even though he also claims to be able to think of God paradoxically as beyond this limit.

Keywords:   God, being, good, Heidegger, ontotheology, Anselm, Lacan, The Ethics of Psychoanalysis, logic of thinking, metaphysics
